Joe Biden takes the narrowest lead in Wisconsin

Posted on by

first_imgNote, there is a roughly 10,000-vote gain in Kenosha that isn’t reflected in these numbers. ThWisconsin’s Democratic Party Chair tweeted this several hours ago:xAbsentee ballots are still being tallied in Milwaukee, Kenosha, and other cities. Based on everything we’ve seen, those ballots will decisively favor Biden. Green Bay hasn’t reported *any* results yet. When all votes are counted, we’re confident that Joe Biden will win Wisconsin.— Ben Wikler (@benwikler) November 4, 2020- Advertisement – xI’ve been talking about this for days, weeks, months: the *scope* of the shift between mail-in & Election Day ballots is unlike the stuff you’re used to seeing on Election Nights. We just saw it in Kenosha, maybe momentarily in Milwaukee, & also makes MI & PA tricky to assess. https://t.co/DYp5oTd4YX— Taniel (@Taniel) November 4, 2020- Advertisement – Milwaukee is mostly in. Kenosha will be +9,600 votes. Green Bay will add to Biden’s margin, since 32,000 absentee ballots remain uncounted. Update: This is the Kenosha results, which weirdly haven’t been posted by the AP. Maybe because it’s 2 am PT. xBREAKING: after all three machines tabulated 19,700- Biden 10,103-Trump The absentee ballots in Kenosha are not enough to take over the county for Biden. Final results should be on the county website soon— Cassidy Williams (@CassidyWtv) November 4, 2020- Advertisement – This isn’t over. But things are looking up. center_img And what we’ve seen here, we’ll see in Michigan and Pennsylvania as well xBased on my replies, I don’t think people have fully internalized how Democratic these mail and absentee ballots will be in MI/PA/WI. It’s going to be close, but these ballots will be overwhelmingly Democratic— Nate Cohn (@Nate_Cohn) November 4, 2020 – Advertisement –last_img read more

Don Mattingly could bat pitcher Zack Greinke eighth in Dodgers’ lineup

Posted on by

first_imgDodgers manager Don Mattingly is never afraid to shake up his lineup, whether to create a spark, buy a day off for one of his regulars or keep his role players fresh.But Mattingly has never had quite the flexibility that Zack Greinke gives him as a proficient hitting pitcher. Greinke wears batter’s spikes on the days he doesn’t pitch just in case, and Mattingly admitted the idea of batting Greinke eighth — a la former Cardinals manager Tony La Russa — is intriguing.“Maybe with Greinke,” said Mattingly, who has used 105 lineups in 117 games this season. “Maybe if we’re facing a left-handed pitcher and we have Dee Gordon in there.” Greinke batted eighth once with the Kansas City Royals in 2009.Mattingly and Greinke both said it would be ideal when the speedy Gordon is in the lineup.“In the right situation, it’s possible,” Greinke said. “It would make sense to bat Dee ninth because he’s so fast and it would be beneficial for the top of the order. But I think it would apply to everyone on our staff, not just me.”The Dodger pitching staff is hitting well, beginning with Clayton Kershaw’s Opening Day home run against the San Francisco Giants. Hyun-Jin Ryu has nine hits and Kershaw has eight.Greinke is batting .385, leading the Dodgers’ pitchers with 15 hits and two doubles (along with Kershaw and Ryu). He has also drawn five walks, including once as a pinch hitter against the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 10. “He’s probably as smart (at the plate) as he is on the mound,” Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire said. “Seriously, he loves to hit, and I love it as a hitting coach because I never understood why pitchers wouldn’t work at hitting, especially in the National League, because they help themselves so much.”When he was the hitting coach with the Cardinals, McGwire observed that Greinke, then with the Milwaukee Brewers, was an adept hitter.“He just kept going on with it,” McGwire said. “He really wants to know what the other guy is doing pitching. He’s ready to hit from the get-go. I can just tell by what he wants to do that he’s got a good idea.”Injury updatesIt is still anyone’s guess when shortstop Hanley Ramirez and outfielder Matt Kemp will return to the lineup.Ramirez again took ground balls during batting practice and more cuts during live batting practice.Mattingly said Ramirez was available to pinch-hit Sunday and was again available Monday night, and all but wrote off the possibility of sending Ramirez to the disabled list.Mattingly said Ramirez could return as soon as tonight if he was feeling well enough, or wait until Friday because of an off-day Thursday.“We’re going to see where he’s at. He’s got to be at a point where he’s not going to hurt himself again,” Mattingly said. “He can’t play just one game if it’s going to cost him seven. If he’s ready to play, he’ll be in there.”Mattingly said Kemp was at about 60 to 70 percent, but there are still benchmarks for Kemp to hit in his rehabilitation.“I’d like to see a little more explosion, and he’s got to be able to stop quickly,” Mattingly said.Bullpen lights outThe Dodgers bullpen continues to throw zeroes up on the scoreboard.The once-maligned unit has recorded 13.1 consecutive scoreless innings entering Monday’s game, last allowing a run on Aug. 7 at St. Louis. Opponents are also hitting .093 (4 for 43) with four walks and 12 strikeouts in that span.Since the All-Star break, the bullpen has a 1.76 earned-run average, the second-lowest in baseball.“To be honest, I think everyone is contributing at the same time and doing their part,” left-hander Paco Rodriguez said. “The starters are taking us deep into games and are giving us an opportunity to use all our guys in the right situation.“At the beginning of the year, we worked hard to try to get into rhythm, and we’re just going to try to keep it going now.”A-Gon shaken, not stirredDodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez complained of dizziness in the top of the eighth inning Sunday and had to be taken out for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the eighth, but was in Monday’s starting lineup.In a season highlighted by Ramirez and Yasiel Puig, Gonzalez has been the steadiest Dodger this season, leading the team with 16 homers and 74 RBI. With his two-run double Sunday night, Gonzalez had recorded an RBI in six straight games.“Adrian is just a grinder. He comes to play. He’s an example guy to me,” Mattingly said. “Day in and day out, he keeps himself in the lineup. This guy is a big-time player.”Punto fetedDodgers infielder Nick Punto received the Major League Baseball Players Association Dodgers Heart and Hustle Award in a pregame ceremony from Fernando Valenzuela.Punto was chosen for the honor by a committee of MLB alumni players and is also nominated for the national award that will be announced Nov. 19 in New York City.Punto also received the award with Minnesota in 2010. Tolleson begins rehabDodgers reliever Shawn Tolleson made his first rehabilitation appearance Sunday for the Dodgers’ Rookie-level team in Arizona, throwing a scoreless inning with one walk.Tolleson made just one appearance for the Dodgers this season, on April 12, before needing back surgery April 25 to repair a herniated disc in his lower back.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)ExpandLakers Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Rob Pelinka made his first statement on Thursday afternoon since Kobe Bryant, 41, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna ­“Gigi” Bryant and seven others died in Sunday’s helicopter crash in Calabasas.Pelinka, a former sports agent who represented Bryant, James Harden and other high-profile NBA players, left Landmark Sports Agency in 2017 to become the Lakers’ GM. He was the godfather to Gianna and was perhaps closer to Bryant than anyone outside his immediate family.Here is the text of Pelinka’s statement, issued through the team:“On Sunday, I lost my best friend and my sweet goddaughter. With that, there has been an amputation of part of my soul. “Their lives have shown me that death has no victory. Last Sunday is not the end of the story. It’s just a new beginning. Kobe and Gigi’s legacies will live on – and gain even more power and influence. All of us touched by them will now try to become torch carriers of their legacies. And, while we do that, we can be certain of this: Kobe and Gigi will continue on, forever, playing a joy-filled game of basketball in heaven above.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Kobe was a force of nature, deep and obsessed with excellence. He was wise, determined, passionate. A visionary beyond measure. A dedicated and loving husband, and a “girl-dad” like no other. When he walked into a room, the energy ignited. He was high voltage, with a motor that had no limits. His mind had an infinite capacity to learn. He was, simply put, the most inspirational athlete of our time. What the world may not know, is that he was also the best friend anyone could ever imagine.“Gigi was pure joy. Her smile brought comfort to any and every occasion. She was brilliant, kind and warm. And, like her dad, when she stepped onto the basketball court, she took on an entirely different nature, and boy could she play. Her basketball destiny was apparent, and the world knew it. She was also an extraordinary, loyal and supportive sister, and a wonderful friend to my children. My son and daughter always left time with Gigi feeling better about life itself. Everything Gigi stood for, I am so proud of.“Maya Angelou once wrote “when great trees fall … lions hunker down in tall grasses.”“What I am daily learning is that after the tragic loss of these nine souls, life on this side of eternity will never be the same. For any of us who knew them, there is an irreplaceable void left behind.“But I am also finding that there is a hope. For now, each new step for me will be full of deep love and prayers, as a heavy sorrow for Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka, and Capri, and all the families involved, is slowly redeemed into something healed and new. I am coming to realize that nothing can separate any of us from the love and inspiration we’ve received from Kobe and Gianna, nothing at all.last_img read more

Nelson Selects shoot way to gold medal at Sam Steele Days tourney

Posted on by

first_imgPlaying against older teams doesn’t seem to bother the Nelson Selects U15 Boy’s squad.For the second time in as many weeks the Selects kept pace with the older players, winning gold at the Sam Steele Youth Soccer Tournament Sunday in Cranbrook.Ironically, Nelson defeated Kootenay East U15’s 4-2 in shootout in the final of the U16 Division. “It was a fantastic weekend,” said coach, Kerry Dyck.“Two weeks ago I told the boys they should be so proud to win a silver medal in an older division, but they took it a step further and won the gold this time, playing up.”Nelson finished second in Invermere, losing in shootout to capture the silver medal.In Cranbrook, the Selects started with a 2-1 win over the Kootenay East U16 Boys, with both goals coming from Aidan Mushumanski on nearly identical plays, smashing excellent volleys on crosses from the right.Nelson then dominate Creston U16 Boys, winning 5-0 in a game where the scored could have easily been double.  “We have a parent keep certain stats during our games, and we had 35 attempts on goal that game, to their 2 (both off target),” said assistant coach, Lyle Hill.  “Although the boys played great, our one concern was the lack of finishing, as we should have had more.” Josh Yasek scored once while Milo Baranyai-Sheppard and Jaden Dyck each added a pair of markers for Nelson.Those results vaulted Nelson into the first in their pool and a place in the semi-finals, where the games started to get harder, facing a team from Coaldale, Alberta.  The Nelson squad played excellent, though, winning comfortably, 2-0, in a game that was never in doubt.   The goal scorers for Nelson were Baranyai-Sheppard again and Blake Markin-Hellekson. The result put Nelson in the final, ironically against the other U15 team in the division, the Kootenay East U15 Boys.  “They’re a very good team, whom we’ve had a great rivalry with for the past four or five years now,” Hill explained.“Though we beat them convincingly, 3-0, the last time we faced them, we knew they’d give us a much stiffer test this time around.”  And that is exactly what happened, with both teams playing an excellent, tightly contested match.  Scoreless after regulation time meant that Nelson was headed to shootouts in the gold medal game for the second tournament in a row.“I think the boys were really determined, after losing the shootout last time, and having to settle for silver,” said coach Verville.  Scoring in the shootout for Nelson were Jahmal Truth-Verville, Jaden Dyck, Grayson Hill and Ezra Foy. And, most importantly, Nelson’s keeper, Bradey Sookero, made two spectacular saves on the four shots he faced in the shootout, to give Nelson the 4-2 victory and the gold medals.“His performance was unbelievable,” said coach Hill.“He was definitely our player of the game in the final for that effort!”  Adding to that comment, coach Dyck noted:“In fact, the defensive effort from our entire team needs to be recognized,” he said.”We only conceded one goal in four games, which was key to our success.  Often, it is the goal scorers who get the glory, but I want to draw attention to the defensive play of our midfielders, Grayson Hill Jaden Dyck, Keanu Tromans, and particularly Ezra Foy, as our holder.”Dyck said other notables included Liam Jones, Thomas Baxter, Jacob Erickson, Josh Schacher and Aidan Mushumanski.However, special mention went to unsung heroes anchoring the defense at center back, Jesse Thurston and Jahmal Truth-Verville.last_img read more
